May 2-29, 2016
Lots of us artists are gatherers, treasure hunters… collectors of “stuff”. We find things on walks or buy the “latest, greatest new art material with the best of intentions. Sometimes these special bits and pieces of treasure get LOST in the shuffle. They’re in that bag or box behind some other “stuff”, just waiting for MAGIC to happen. Fortunately… we FOUND that stuff!
Your challenge: Get your Lost and Found Kit and use everything included to create an amazing work of art. Can you make something marvelous from the mundane?
- A 12”x12” cradled board
- Textile scraps
- Artist paper
- Found objects
- Wire, string… the possibilities are endless
You can add to the materials in your kit, but you cannot subtract. All the materials that were included in your kit must be visible and identifiable on your finished artwork. Maximum artwork size: 30”x30”x30”. Each artist will price their artwork for sale; the gallery will retain a 40% commission of sales. Every Lost and Found Kit is unique (other than the cradled board).
ENTRY FEE (INCLUDES KIT): $35
MOST CREATIVE $100
MOST UNIFIED ARTWORK $100
